Report describing the allocation of £176, 000 collected by the Central British Fund for German Jewry during 1934 for use in relief and refugee assistance. “Central British Fund (CBF) , now known as World Jewish Relief, the principal British refugee relief agency, established in May 1933 as the Central British Fund for German Jewry, for emergency relief to persecuted persons following the Nazi rise to power. The CBF formed the Jewish Refugees Committee (JRC) as its case-working body and financed its activities. The purpose of this Committee was to assist Jewish refugees from Central Europe in the United Kingdom. The CBF also aided settlement in Palestine, and facilitated various emigration schemes. The CBF assumed a blanket guarantee vis-à-vis the British government that the refugees from Nazi oppression would not become a burden on public funds. When the number of refugees from Germany and Austria reached 60, 000 at the outbreak of World War II, the British government agreed to subsidize the work of the JRC. ” (EJ 2007) Subjects: Political refugees.
